Annual Powercat Auction Set for April 25

MANHATTAN, Kan. – As fans gear up for K-State’s 2014 Purple/White spring game, activities for Wildcat Nation will kick off the day before as the athletics department will host the 30th Annual Powercat Auction on Friday, April 25.

The auction will be held at Bramlage Coliseum with doors to the arena opening at 5 p.m. Silent auctions will begin immediately and wrap up at 6:45 p.m., while a buffet dinner will be served from 6:15 p.m. until 7:45 p.m. The live auction portion of the event will begin at 7:45 p.m.

The Powercat Auction, the department’s single largest fundraising event, supports the Ahearn Fund, K-State’s National Fund for Student-Athlete Excellence. Last year’s event raised more than $320,000 to directly enhance the student-athlete experience for all Wildcat student-athletes.

The auction will feature more than 100 live and silent auction items, along with a vacation getaway raffle, which will take place on the concourse level of Bramlage Coliseum.
